    @rkperumala1 Thank you very much. Thank you once more for helping out on deciding the final price quote. I got the Final OTR as 8.6L..Didn't ask for any freebies yet, but planning to at the time of delivery..The name was given by a reviewer at motorbash.com when I congratulated him and conveyed my plans of going for a white Punto Evo. The review of the Punto Evo on motorbash is very good, which you may find interesting. :)

    You should ask the Freebies before you settle the final amount ;-)
    Checking motorbash now. Thank you :)

    @harsha: Try getting the original Fiat mud flaps that don't spoil Punto's look, even though they aren't the best, but I guess it is the best compromise between looks and usability, foot mats and the rear chrome exhaust as free accessories.

    @rkperumala1 Not Sure Yet..But mostly in the first week of April..The car is supposed to be a March '16 mfd one, hence the delivery date delay..At least that's what I've been informed..Bit busy right now, So I previously asked for a delivery after 15-20 days after paying the booking amount. They had told me that a Magnesio and an Exotica Colour were readily available, being Jan '16 mfd ones, but I didn't prefer both of those colours.

    @rkperumala1 Excited for sure :) Did a round trip of 200 km today through some very nicely laid and curvy roads on my Gen.1 Swift..As always it was a hoot to drive, sublime handling along with the creamy midrange..I wonder if the Evo could match it in terms of handling and midrange power delivery..Guess I would find out soon ;)

    How would you rate the Music system in the 90 HP ? Is it decent enough for casual listening or does it warrant a component/Amp upgrade ? Owners kindly advise..

    90 HP's mid range is brilliant, remember it's heavy, so it's momentum at high speeds is greater as well. It's just that you need to push her, thanks to the awesome gear ratios :D and it doesnt sound bad at all at those RPMs , in fact it's the best when compared to other manufacturer's mjds, very sporty.

    Handling wise, it does have body roll, but not much, which still eggs you to push more, thanks to the brilliant suspension, that doesn't affect its riding as well, which Swift, or even the Germans can't match.

    ICE is decent, a lot better than GP, at least for a casual listener IMO. You can later upgrade the speakers if you want, but the HU isn't that bad.
